BurgerTime, PC

BurgerTime for PC MS-DOS was released by Mattel Electronics in 1982* and it is on a par with the Apple II version – at least graphically – and plays extremely well.

It’s actually very close to the arcade original – in terms of playability – but obviously lacks the graphical detail, with only a ‘hard-on-the-eyes’ four-colour CGA version available (if there is a VGA version, I couldn’t find it).

Don’t be put off by the lack of colour, though. DOS BurgerTime is good, wholesome, patty-dropping fun from start to finish.

* = Again: I don’t completely believe that PC BurgerTime (or any of the Mattel BurgerTime releases) were actually released in 1982, even though it says “copyright 1982” on the title screen. I think that refers to the arcade original. It’s much more likely, in my mind, that Mattel‘s releases were made in 1983, or later.

BurgerTime versions on The King of Grabs:
Arcade, Apple II, Intellivision, PC, Atari 2600, ColecoVision,
MSX, Famicom Disk System
